      Abstract:

      Systematic X-ray diffraction study of the crystal structures of   1,3-dialkylimidazole-based

      ionic liquids containing the Br– anion was performed. Analysis of   the influence of the nature of

      the cation on the formation of a hydrogen bond system and the   supramolecular arrangement of

      ions demonstrated that not only CH...Br contacts but also   anion-π-system and CH-π-system

      interactions exist in the crystalline state. Conclusions were   drawn on the character of changes

      in the melting point in a series of bromide ionic liquids   containing the imidazolium cation.
